Free PCB Sunday: FT2232H breakout board

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype. Our PCBs are made through Seeed Studio’s Fusion board service.

This week we’re giving away two PCBs for our new FT2232H breakout board. This board has the latest 5th generation FT2232H USB 2.0 I/O chip. The FT2232 is a USB to serial converter like the FT232, but with a bunch more features.

Get the FT2232H breakout board for $27 at Seeed Studio, read about the design on the wiki.

  1. Hi

    I won such a board the last time and it is awesome.
    But beware, the ft2232 is extremely narrow pitched, it took me about 8 hours of debugging to make it work, altough I am really experienced at working with smd.But it was worth the effort, thank you Ian.

    Cheers
